Varied vases simple teacher gift

Summer school holidays are fast approaching so I am thinking up ideas for teacher gifts. this simple pizza style box holds four standard size scented tea lights. The box is nothing new and super easy to replicate. You make it your own by the decoration. So here is mine .. customised to my own design with my choice of decoration.

I have been eager to use the Varied vases bundle for weeks. A very special set designed by the amazing Mary Fish who hit her 1 MILLION dollar sales what a great achievement, and what a beautiful set she has designed for us.

I have always loved bundles with stamps and punches they are my favourite simply for the ease of use. This set has so many combinations and possibilities it would b hard to find two projects the same.

So I used just two of the vases from this huge set and created a simple but pretty box for one of Alexis teaching support staff ..they do a wonderful job so why not make a small inexpensive gift they so deserve it. 

I do have a fun full process tutorial video for you to follow. Measurements and products used are listed below. So why not grab a brew, get comfy and enjoy the video.

Animal outings fun card for Stampin' for all Facebook group

How much fun is this stamp set !!!! brilliant I love it. I created this fun card especially for the lovely Ian Potter, a fellow UK demo who helps me run the facebook craft form Stampin' for all. Ian set a card case challenge or us to follow and this is what I came up with.

I love fun cards life is way to short to take things serious a little bit of silly now and then goes a long way in my book. The Animal outings is a great set with cuts fun animal image and some really great sentiments. There is a whole suite focused around this with fun Designer series paper available too.

I chose to just use the stamps on this card and stamped my own background using Shaded Spruce ink. The images are stamped in Granite grey a great outline colour. Te images were given a pop of colour using the Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils. A great artist I am not but combined with the Stampin' blender pens the pencils give a nice smooth finish.

Finally to make my centrepiece stand out a border was stamped using the swirly frames stamp set again using Shaded Spruce. What fun card to send to anyone ad for any occasion ... even just to say hello.

I hope you enjoyed this card all the products used are listed below. Feel free to come on over and find our Stampin' For All Facebook group and perhaps meet Ian and join in our challenges.
